More than just a chip upgrade

ASUS Philippines has announced that its newest line of ROG and TUF laptops with Intel 12th Gen Core chips will arrive in the country. Find out the specs and price below.

In a digital launch, ASUS has made official their latest flagship, the ROG Flow Z13, together with improved models of the ROG Strix SCAR, ROG Zephyrus M16, TUF Dash F15, and TUF Gaming F15 and F17.

ASUS ROG Flow Z13 2022: Price, Specs in the Philippines

The ROG Flow Z13 combines the best aspects of tablet mobility with PC versatility to create an all-new gaming experience. Here’s why this new flagship product is a cut among the other ROG laptops released so far:

  • It features a tablet form factor, allowingthe Z13 to stay incredibly light and slim at just 1.1 kg and 12 mm thick while packing the gaming power of much larger devices.
  • The tablet features a 13-inch Full HD 16:10 Touchscreen Display with 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision, Pantone Validation, Adaptive Sync with 100% sRGB coverage and Corning Gorilla glass protection. This means you get the option to play with the tablet via touch controls, a gamepad, or your preferred USB-connected or wireless keyboard and mouse.
  • Flow Z13 houses its components behind the screen with a kickstand built-in. This unconventional layout for a gaming device allows the Z13 to stand high above a desk or table when in use, granting much better access to fresh air than traditional gaming laptops.
  • This same design also allowed ASUS to put in a vapor chamber cooling system to aid in keeping the temperatures in the chassis at acceptable levels
  • Despite the form factor, there is still room for multiple I/O slots including USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, and Ethernet; plus pins for a detachable keyboard that only has 1.7mm of travel.
  • Other key specs: up to a 14-core Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, a MUX Switch and 5200 MHz LPDDR5 memory. It’s also compatible with the ROG XG Mobile famile of external GPUs for added gaming performance.
